: well, he isn't the only one looking forward to the next fight. washington insiders are ready to rumble over the fiscal cliff and how to keep the country from careening over it, for a sense of what's at stake let's just take a tiny peek over the edge. if congress cannot reach a deal, every tax cut that was enacted since the year 2001 would expire. most importantly, the bush tax cuts. and that means an average $3500 tax increase per household. on top of that, we would see $110 billion in spending cuts next year followed by $1.2 trillion in spending cuts over the next ten years. now all of the pundits and the prognosticators and the prospect purveyors and the public accountants, they all predict that going over the fiscal cliff is going to wreak havoc on the economy. it's called the fiscal cliff. it's described in the suicidal terms. it is apocalyptic. it is armageddon, the end of everything we hold dear. today, the horror was amplified by a new congressional budget office report that said that if we did go over th
